Austin Kleon is both a writer and an artist whose work is centered on creativity and imaginative thinking and who has been featured on NPR, in the Wall Street Journal and The Economist. His books include ”Newspaper Blackout” and, just published, ”Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You about Being Creative.” It’s a manifesto for the digital age, a message that creativity doesn’t require genius and that it’s a lot easier to get in touch with your creative self than you might think. ”Nothing is original, so embrace influence, collect ideas and re-mix to discover your own path,” he writes. Kleon not only wrote but designed the book, and as he proclaims, he stays centered on practicality. We think you’ll find his talk challenging and inspiring and maybe something that just might get your creative juices flowing. Please join us for this unique program.
